Today during their Japanese Direct, Nintendo announced the “new” 3DS ….. which seems to have the worlds smallest second analog. Whatever, whether it’s small or not at least it’s there.The second analog (which they are dubbing the c stick) will be used as camera controls for games like Monster hunter 4, Final Fantasy Explorers and as smash attack for Smash Bros for 3ds.
Along with the second analog comes extra shoulder buttons which gamers are more familiar with on console controllers. Other new features also include NFC technology for amiibo figures, a Micro Sd card slot and an improved display. The top screen now allows for the 3d effect to be viewed from more angles and it will auto adjust the brightness when in certain areas.
A western release was not announced. However, Nintendo did note that it would not release this year.
